#3150019 Disciplinary - Ben Currie

Posted by wackojacko on 30 June 2015 - 11:59 AM

Lenient IMO. Do refs need more self-respect? ;)




#3148315 Steve Matai, he may be a veteran but he has still got it.

Posted by wackojacko on 27 June 2015 - 02:26 PM

If he had ever put half as much effort into his all round game as he did into trying to prove how tough he is, he'd have been a good player. 

 

But where's the fun in that?




#3148040 French Update

I have only one question... how do you cope with being a league-man living in Pau? 

 

I travel :P  It's not much different to back in England near Bournemouth...




#3147910 French Update

Posted by wackojacko on 26 June 2015 - 05:17 PM

I've started writing some articles for TOXIII (in English and French). The first one's here: http://www.to13.com/...samuel-jackson/ http://www.to13.com/...samuel-jackson/  

 

I ended up getting to it a bit late and it was published even later in the end so a lot of it was no longer relevant and got cut but if anyone has any comments or suggestions they would be gratefully received.

#3142427 RLIF head Collier: France, Wales & Scotland can progress to top level easily

Posted by wackojacko on 17 June 2015 - 05:18 PM

France and Wales sure, but Scotland? Is it two or three clubs they've got? Bar David Scott, all they have is a bit of luck with heritage players.




#3142183 State of Origin 2 - The Match Thread - Spoilers guaranteed

Two bizarre no-try decisions.




#3135306 French Update

Catalans U19s entry to the SL U19s competition has been confirmed for next season after this year's transitional period.




#3133720 French Update

Futtocks same thing with England, Irish potato famine or coughing on blankets with influenza and giving them to Maori... are some of the worst examples!

 

Back on topic it would be good to see a map of the 96 departments of mainland France in relation to rugby league, what and how many departments of France would the game have a strong presence in Tarn, Aude... how many departments would game have any presence in even if only one community amateur club? and how many departments would game have no presence in at all?

 

http://www.slate.fr/...es-france-sport You can see all sports through this. Very regionalised.

At least he's still in RL.




#3131113 French Update

If Gigot continues like that, you've got a full pro squad playing in the right positions. Obviously in two years you could see big changes but it could look something like this:

 

Escaré

Yaha

Duport

Gigot

Cardace

Fages

Bosc/Dureau/Marginet/Jouffret

Casty

Pelissier

Bousquet

Larroyer

Garcia

Mounis

 

Simon

Springer

Boudebza

Baitieri

 

 

Also, Maxime Herold from Limoux and briefly of London Broncos is off to play Canberra Cup.

That was such a dull second half. Gimme international RL anyday.

Hodges is a #####.




#3128954 Italy RL - FIRL/LIRFL split (Merged threads)

Posted by wackojacko on 25 May 2015 - 01:54 PM

I agree that they are doing more to promote the sport but all official statements seem to suggest they would be doing this under the FIR, a union body. In any case, I don't think having a single governing body for two different sports is at all a good idea. This is where the RLIF need to be fighting to get recognition.

Losing Pelissier to union would be a travesty.
